This is the best, the cleanest, the cutest and the 'astig'-est* metro from all asian metros i've been to, and one of the best in the world. It's no bullshitting here! And... it saved my ass, litterary. I just regret we didnt ride the brown line, which isnt the steal-onsteal train line, but rybber-tyred netro... well, maybe somewhen in the future (i know "somewhen" isn't exist, but i invented it right now so it does exist now!)
One day, it was maybe 9 or 10 june, we wanted to go hiking in the national park close to the city, but i had stomach problems, and it made the hike actually impossible. It has to be the chicken, eaten at the street the day before! - That "accident" didnt stop us in the slightest from eating on the street!
We skip the mountain hiking and stayed in town, coz - as the first metro i visited (up to day there are 38 systems i've been to), has bathrooms in all stations - and this saved my life, which was pretty hard.

We stayed the whole day close to metro stations, just in case i had to go to the bathroom. We visited the temple and the park, and river-bank, all in walking distance from the metro stations. We ate close to metro entrance and rested there;) That was supposed to be a 'nature-day and it turned out into a real city- or civilisation-day.
So a big, no, it should be atleast a mega-hyper-huge XIE XIE to metro Taipei! U r the best!

*Astig --> from tagalog (filipino) stands for "cool", "awesome", "great" - it comes from the anagram word "tigas", which means "hard" or "stubborn"  haahhahaha
